The Glorious Technocratic State of Imperium of Josh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Imperator Josh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 10.399 billion Imperials are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,671 trillion IOJ Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,726 IOJ Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperium of Josh's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imperium of Josh is ranked 64,664th in the world and 74th in Social Technocratic Union for Most Influential, scoring 290 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
